  • Which questions did you guys attempt in paper 2??
    Prelims:04 Mains:04* Interview:03
  • paper 1 was as usual, but emphasis was given on tribals particularly [religions of tribes, band and egs]. i got troubled while answering evolutionary significance of primates and descent question. rest was fine.
    paper 2 i felt was tricky. gave austro asiatic language for 10 marks. i felt marks allocated were higher for few questions partially may be my inadequate preparation.

  • Which questions did you guys attempt in paper 2??

    I attempted 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6. What did you attempt?

    And are you the same mitochondria who ran the IASBaba TLP Anthro? :O
  • hello gr souls..
    i wanted to see sosin madams demo lecture, can some1 help me find one..
    i did not find any.
    ps: my optional is geog and i m just considering wheather to change my optional or keep geog..

    tia
  • I have screwed up my anthropology paper 2, majorly because of lack of knowledge. @veterans kindly guide me on-
    1. How to approach tribal section of paper 2 eg. impact of displacement on health of tribal communities 15 marks what can 1 write for 20 marks- reference nadeem and yojana-nutritional security wala article, juang example but points are not enough to fetch 20 marks. linguistic question 10 marks? Nadeem doesn't seem enough to me. Either i don't know much to develop and frame a respectable answer so I just need a direction.
    2. Is there any test series which you rate as the best among the worst?
    3. Paper 1 physical part- It was difficult to complete the 20 marks answer in 3 pages(why did they give 3 pages in paper 1 and 4 in paper 2 for 20 markers, Is 2017 an exception?)-Also everyone studies from P nath so eventually everyone writes the same content(same language and headings) so how can one make his/her answer stand out. Kindly suggest
    PS: Thank you in advance for taking out time to answer

    You should find one in YouTube under the now infamous La Excellence channel. She teaches the culture part decently but she left the biological part to the dogs.

    i too felt paper 2 was tricky....
    can any experienced soul tell how was marking in anthro paper 2 in previous years?? avg answer ke 7-8/20 ate hai ya usse kam, and what about physical anthro marking? my entire game of paper 1 is based on that.. linient marking hui to p1 would be average nahi to disaster hai paper 1 mein.... i forgot every example for answers in section a and got mixed up.... upar se ata to kafi kuch hai lekin naam aur tribes yaad rakhne mushkil ho gaye the......

    someone just answer this question clearly please.... how is your experience in marks given in anthro... avg content likhne ke 15- 20 marks me se kitne number milte hai?? esp physical anthro ke answers ke liye...
    and paper 2 ka avg scores kaise hote hai? kya 110-120 expect karna sahi hoga , i felt my 10 markers were awesome with lots of CS and examples... 50 markers me thoda dicey hai... tried writing answers using my history knowledge but how much it convinces examiner is upto him/her....

    PS: one thing i know after writing anthro mains, its a small subject compared to history, very small infact. but its not as if one can do it in 2-3 months and get a good rank, it also needs a lot of efforts.

    PPS: after exams i tried maps from history paper and thinking of answering questions in paper 1... found it awesome.. easily identifies 8-10 sites (guess it was easy)... though history questions i still found tough this time too

    For displacement and health, Debhar commission report would have provided enough fodder...
